A Podcast with Lee and Aimée
Or taking a vacation from being so hard on yourself.
It’s Friday the 13th (which we didn’t plan) and we’re releasing our 71st episode, which is an odd number to note, and also it’s our Season 4 finale! HOORAY! In this episode, Aimée declares that this should be a Summer of Self-Acceptance, so we talk about what that means and what it could look like when you’re neurodivergent.
Rest assured, we’ll be back…Eventually, sometime in the...
So, I’m going to put a big, ol’ content warning on the top of this one. We talk about how the medical system and the individuals acting in it are ableist and ageist and sexist AF (among other things) and we share how we suffer the consequences.
Aimée bravely shares her recent experience, and we both discuss how the medical system has failed us, middle-aged perimenopausal neurodivergent (white) women.
There is a fuck-ton of swearing...
Elon Musk bought Twitter. This is where Aimée and I have all of our friends. We talk about why Twitter is such a great place for us to make and sustain friendships, and why we are perceived as being terrible friends when we’re not on Twitter.
Come to commiserate, share with your friends and loved ones to prove that you do, in fact, love them and that we’re all doing our very best.
In this episode, Aimée and I discuss what it’s like to be bored when you’re neurodivergent. And, spoiler alert, it happens A LOT and when it does, we have a physical reaction that can end up making us look like assholes. Not just look like, but actually we are being a bit of an asshole.
HOWEVER, knowing what is happening is the first step to being able to do something about it, so we talk about how to recognize and differentiate di...
In the throws of insomnia, Aimée posses the question: what is the worst advice you’ve every heard which would make perfect sense if you were neurotypical, but as someone who is neurodivergent, the advice is complete nonsense?
Kinda like that sentence, AMIRIGHT?
We share ALL THE THINGS that didn’t work for us, reactions to sharing the things that do work for us from neurotypicals, and how we know what works for us isn’t what will wo...
Hi, so, in this episode, Aimée drops a massive truth-bomb on me (and thus you, also) about self-care. Warning: you will feel really uncomfortable and possibly cry a little, but you NEED TO HEAR THIS.
We’re talking about self-care. It’s not all uncomfortable truths and necessary realizations and reframings. We still end up laughing, a lot.
Today we’re talking about the loaded and landmine-filled topic, receiving feedback as people who are neurodiverse. One of our listeners suggested the topic, and we both know how difficult it is to get critiqued when all you hear is harsh criticism. We talk about our worst moments of receiving feedback, all the ways we try to be kind with our own feedback, and how we’re working to accept and hear feedback (real feedback, at least) ...
Hi. Today Aimée and I talk about perfectionism. As you can probably tell by the quality of this website and podcast recording/editing quality, I am team Good Enough, while Aimée is on Team Perfectionism. Which are both problematic in their own ways, and we talk about it. A lot. I hope whichever team you fall under, you find something you can relate to.
We sprang forward with the time (although this was recorded two weeks before that happened), it’s about to be the equinox, days are getting longer, and Aimée and I are getting MANIC AF. We talk about managing our energy, learning from the cycle of the seasons, and the importance of rituals.
MANIA! ADHD is fucking weird, y’all.
Or, I Better Have Remembered To Attach The Damn MP3 File To This Post Or Alanis Morissette Is Going To Write A Whole Fucking Verse About This For A New Recording Of Her Hit Song Ironic.
Which was too long for the full title, but I had to get it out. We’re still talking about memory. The final 30min is literally us trying and failing to end the episode and devolving into hysterical laughter that was so cathartic. Enjoy.
